Local restaurants hold benefit for family of fallen Cincinnati officer

Walt’s Barbeque and J. Austin’s Riverbank Café in Hamilton will donate 40 percent of all guest checks (except taxes and gratuity) all day long Tuesday (July 7) to benefit the family of fallen Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim.

“The Cincinnati Police Department’s talented professionals and their families have been regular customers for more than 30 years,” said Executive Chef James Riley. “We want to specifically give back to Officer Kim’s family and continue to show our gratitude and support of the brave men and women who protect and serve Cincinnati.”

Joining the two Hamilton restaurants will be Walt’s Colerain location and Riley’s Restaurant in Springdale. All are owned by the Legacy Restaurant Group.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the families impacted by this tragedy,” said Gloria Riley. “We love the communities we do business in and we want to provide a convenient and impactful way to express honor and thanks to Office Kim’s family. They have lost a father, husband and loved one. And the Cincinnati police department has lost a respected colleague.”

Gift baskets will be auctioned off at each location to bolster the impact. Donations for the auctions/giveaways are now being accepted.

Anyone interested in donating items should contact Gloria Riley at 513-771-3361.
